Not Too Late for 2018 NADeFA Conference

The North American Deer Farmers Association (NADeFA) announces that reservation bookings for its 2018 NADeFA Conference have been strong this year, but there is still time for deer farmers to take advantage of special ‘early bird’ rates.

The nation’s largest cervid association event — scheduled for March 21-24, 2018 at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Ind. — welcomes deer farmers and industry professionals from across the country, and will host exciting fund-raising auctions, antler competition, venison competition and educational seminars.

“We’re excited to once again bring our annual conference to Indiana and to showcase deer farming which is one of the fastest growing industries in North America,” says NADeFA Executive Director Shawn Schafer. “Our conference is the industry’s premier event for all of North America. We welcome anyone interested in learning about deer farming to join us for a great weekend of networking, camaraderie and a fun learning experience.”
